Indiana Fever Select Aliyah Boston With No. 1 Pick In WNBA Draft
The Indiana Fever selected former South Carolina star and 2022 Naismith Player of the Year Aliyah Boston with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 WNBA draft on Monday night at New York City’s Spring Studios.
Boston — a 6-foot-5 forward who grew up in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands before moving to Massachusetts as a teenager to pursue her basketball dream — became the second top overall pick out of South Carolina, joining two-time league MVP A’ja Wilson in 2018.
Maryland’s Diamond Miller was selected second by the Minnesota Lynx, while Maddy Siegrist became Villanova’s highest-ever WNBA draft pick at No. 3, going to the Dallas Wings.
